Chris Darimont explains “achievement” and hunter satisfactions in carnivore hunting

Darimont joins Pamela McCall on CFAX 1070 to discuss new research by Raincoast and UVic.

New research by Raincoast and the University of Victoria has shed new light on what satisfies hunters. Published in the peer-reviewed journal Wildlife Society Bulletin, we found that the dominant satisfaction expressed in online hunting stories is achievement. This paper was published by Alena Ebeling-Schuld and Chris Darimont, Raincoast Raincoast science director and large carnivore expert.

On August 29th, Darimont joined Pamela McCall on CFAX 1070. They discussed the research and also, briefly, some of the implications for the future of carnivore hunting in British Columbia.

This interview is roughly twenty minutes. Take a listen.
